This route breaks off to the right of "Jane Pauly" approximately 12-15' up the crack; it's an obvious line to the top. A relatively easy walk off is necessary (or leave your pro for me to get later).

I felt this route was notably more technical than the neighboring Jane Pauley.

As an added bonus, you can finish up the finger crack in the small left facing dihedral which will take you to the summit of the rock - a better finish than the one indicated in the photo here.
